Got the Iron Rock Offroad front adjustable arms on. I stretched the front as far as I could without too much interference in the steering. Onroad ride is mucho bettero than the worn out poly bushings on the fixed lowers from BDS.

Also installed the Crown HD steering setup. For the price, not bad considering its all new ends and a beefier tie rod. If I jump to 35/36" tires, a heavier setup is in order.

Next up, get my CB installed and go wheelin!

Oh yeah, and some light wheeling resulted in a little carnage. Hello Ten Factory shafts...
